Spiritual Awakening Headaches: Causes, Symptoms, and Solutions

The term “spiritual awakening headache,” or SAH for short, is an occasional headache that can be accompanied by other symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, and feelings of pressure.

This type of headache is very different than the types of headaches which are usually caused by things like stress or tension in the head or neck muscles.

Instead, spiritual awakening headaches are often attributed to people undergoing an intense spiritual experience.

In this article we’re going to look at some causes, symptoms and solutions, so let’s jump in!

What are the symptoms of spiritual awakening headaches?

Spiritual headache

The term “spiritual awakening headaches” has been defined as anything from a headache to more severe symptoms like nausea, vomiting, dizziness, lightheadedness, and tingling sensations when experiencing a spiritual awakening.

You might be asking, how do I know if I am experiencing a regular headache or a spiritual awakening headache. Well first of all, if you’re having a spiritual awakening, you would know :-D. You can find some spiritual awakening symptoms here if you want to check it though.

One of the biggest differences between regular and spiritual awakening headaches is that spiritual awakening headaches can last quite a bit longer with pain killers having minimal effect.

If you’re experiencing spiritual awakening headaches it’s good to know that you’re not alone. It’s actually quite common. There is no cause for alarm as it’s merely a sign that you’re progressing on your spiritual journey.

What are some of the causes of spiritual awakening headaches?

You might be experiencing spiritual awakening headaches due to the fact that your energies are shifting to a higher frequency.

The higher vibrations are flowing through our chakras and nadis (the almost infinite network of tubular organs or channels of energy flow felt throughout the body).

However, it should be noted that it isn’t the actual energy that’s the cause of your spirituality headache, but rather our body’s reaction to this energy shift.

How can you deal with spiritual awakening headaches?


As I said before, usually painkillers do not have a very meaningful effect on spiritual awakening headaches.

Therefore it is recommended to take a more spiritual approach and heal yourself holistically with the steps outlined below.

While experiencing a spiritual headache, remember that you are going through a spiritual awakening which is a great thing to achieve, so the headache should actually be seen as a good sign.

Below are the steps to heal your spiritual awakening headache.

  1. Choose scents – You can use oil-based scents, candles, or incense sticks as fragrances in healing rituals, especially by using menthol, lavender, or sandalwood. If you are doing this in the morning, use menthol, and if you’ll be performing this sort of activity in the evening, use lavender or sandalwood.
  2. Drink water – Drink a full glass of water at room temperature. The water should not be too cold as this can shock the internal system. Just make sure to finish the entire glass in one go.
  3. Lay down. While laying down, relax and completely accept the pain. Don’t resist it. Maintain a distance between yourself and your senses.
  4. Feel for the negative energy. Apply pressure to your temples with your hands where you feel the pain is most intense, you will notice the energy will move through your head. Keep following the pain with your hands until the pain is gone.

The whole process should take about half an hour give or take. You can do it longer if the pain persists.


There you have it! Everything you should know about spiritual awakening headaches.

Keep in mind, I’m not giving medical advice! I am not a doctor, so if you feel your headache is getting too severe, don’t hesitate to see a doctor.
